The Shaping of Middle-earth

The History of Middle-Earth Series

The Quenta, the Ambarkanta, and the Annals, Together With the Earliest 'Silmarillion' and the First Map

J. R. R. Tolkien

Discover the early myths and legends that led to J.R.R. Tolkien's epic tale of war, The Silmarillion, in The Shaping of Middle-earth. This fourth volume in The History of Middle-earth delves into the chronological and geographical structure of Middle-earth and Valinor, including the previously unknown Ambarkanta, or "Shape of the World," complete with maps and diagrams. The Annals of Valinor and The Annals of Beleriend showcase how the chronology of the First Age was formed, while the tale of Aelfwine, an Englishman who voyaged into the True West, offers insights into the ancient history of Elves and Men.
